Kefallinos-Owned Building’s Falling Bricks Cause Street Closures in Detroit

DETROIT – Greek-American Dennis Kefallinos is being cited again for an unsafe building which he owns in Detroit, Deadline Detroit reported on June 3, noting that bricks have been falling off the former Hoban Cold Storage facility on East Warren Avenue, near Eastern Market, causing streets to be closed.

Deadline Detroit noted that “the City of Detroit Department of Public Works department is closing East Warren Avenue at Dequindre Street, St. Aubin Street and East Forest Avenue. Residents are asked to use a detour route on Canfield or Russell streets.”

Kefallinos “has been targeted with tickets and lawsuits in the past,” Deadline Detroit reported, adding that “the building was built by Albert Kahn, and before being used as cold storage, it served as a tobacco warehouse. The last business moved out in 2007.”

“Authorities said the owner of the building has been issued nearly $5,000 in tickets and will continue to be issued tickets until the owner addresses the hazard,” Click on Detroit reported, adding that “the Buildings, Safety Engineering, & Environmental Department is also working with the law department on potential legal action.”
